ⓘ Intraneural perineurioma

An intraneural perineurioma is a rare benign tumor within the sheath of a single nerve that grows but typically does not recur or metastasize. These lesions are only composed of perineurial cells, cloned from a single cell. They are distinct from schwannoma and neurofibroma.

"Intraneural perineurioma is a neoplastic proliferation of perineurial cells with unique immunohistochemistry and ultrastructural features, and unlike other onions Schwann cell-derived entities. Despite harboring molecular abnormalities of the long arm of chromosome 22, intraneural perineurioma has not been associated with neurofibromatosis."
